An Exclusive Screening of New Star Wars Rebels Episodes Coming to New York Comic Con
New York Comic Con is less than 2 months away, and LucasFilm today announced they have big plans for what is now one of the biggest pop culture events in the world. If you were lucky enough to secure tickets for NYCC's Thursday programming, you've got the chance to become one of the first in the world to see two new episodes of Rebels' second season. 

Opening quote
The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and will be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes later on the same stage, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These all-new episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe - three clones from the previous Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from The Clone Wars – Ahsoka Tano – who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of season 1.
Closing quote


At Star Wars Celebration earlier this year, we were given information about how Captain Rex and his team of retired clones have been faring in the years since the end of the Clone Wars. These new episodes will see an ageing Captain Rex (seen above) team up with Kana and his team, thanks in no small part to his learning that his dear friend Ahsoka Tano is in league with the fledgling rebellion.

Rebels had its Season 2 premiere in June of this year, with 2 episodes (which screened at Celebration) that saw Darth Vader playing a far more prominent role than anybody had expected. A potential meeting between Vader and his one-time Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano is what all fans want to see, and with the show getting an extended run for its second order, we may get what we wished for.



At the time of writing, Thursday tickets were the only NYCC tickets left available, so might we suggest you go buy one....right now? New York Comic Con kicks off on Thursday 8th October and runs through to Sunday 11th.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 returns to Disney XD this fall.
